Understanding the Influence of Viewpoint and Image Geometry in Linear Perspective Paintings to Enhance Embodied Interaction

HCI International 2013

Abstract

Museums are attracted by new technologies, for example tracking systems and multitouch displays. They try to include them into their concepts, to expand the access to the artifacts. The intention of this work appears out of the image geometry of a linear perspective painting. We assume that the position of the perspective painting on the wall should depend on the observer’s viewpoint. To prove this hypothesis we undertook an experiment with 20 participants and four perspective paintings. We detected a relevant connection between observer and the image geometry of the painting. Accordingly the observer, the room in front of the painting and the image itself are related together. Therefore this relation of the parameters is part of the research field of embodied interaction.
